It's like a four letter word bangin' 'round my head It's my cruel desire turns my face all red It's my flamin' heart let me show you instead It's like quicksand It's like shakin' hands Hear the screams from all the young dudes Loud enough to bust a heart in two What do they mean, baby, what should we do? It's like quicksand We ain't losin' ground - we're just losin' some grace, now, sugar Can't save your ass while you're saving face, baby Look in the mirror understand disgrace It's like quicksand It's like a four letter word bangin' 'round my head It's my cruel desire turn my face all red It's my flamin' heart let me show you instead It's like quicksand It's like quicksand See, we got this dream born from a nightmare's grave Look in the mirror a familiar face, baby It's different bodies, the same damn place It's like quicksand It's like a four letter word bangin' 'round my head It's my cruel desire turn my face all red It's my flamin' heart let me show you instead It's like quicksand It's like quicksand It's like Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh Quicksand It's like a four letter word bangin' 'round my head It's my cruel desire turn my face all red It's my flamin' heart let me show you instead It's like quicksand It's like a four letter word bangin' 'round my head It's my cruel desire turn my face all red It's my flamin' heart let me show you instead It's like quicksand It's like quicksand It's like quicksand It's like quicksand

Endless summer Time belonged to me Butterscotch chocolated I chose my destiny Once a high-born How the mighty fall Beggary, buggery I confess all Pagan gospel song Calms my dreams blue He pleasures me politely But he's not you Why don't you wanna love me? Why don't you wanna love me? Why don't you wanna love me? Baby Why don't you wanna love me? Why don't you wanna love me? Why don't you wanna love me? The way I wanna love you Crystal winter Dark angels danced away Rich man's playground December's children play Cherry mulled wine To dull the senses' lust I need to drown the hollow sound Your symphony of trust My gluttony for salvation Is my feast of fools She pleasures me skillfully But she's not you Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) The way I wanna love you Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) The way I wanna love you The merriment of confidence Ghosts flattered by the ghouls He pleasures me desperately He knows that he's not you Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) The way I wanna love Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) The way I wanna love Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) Why don't you wanna love me? (Why don't you wanna love me) The way I wanna love you

You're just some worn-out King tellin' me how to walk across my floor You said the same damn thing yesterday into the day before You're just a Cupid Killer I'm a little bored, destroyed by love You're just a Cupid Killer I need more than some worn out love Well, I ain't bulletproof but I'll take the hits just 'cause I'm hard-headed You're always lookin' for proof, here it is, why don't you come and get it? And even though my eyes shine when I look at you You walk around pretendin' it ain't true Well, I know what you got, and what you got ain't what's houndin' you baby You're just some worn-out King tellin' me how to walk across my floor You said the same damn thing yesterday into the day before You're just a Cupid Killer I'm a little bored, and destroyed by love You're just a Cupid Killer I need a little more than your worn out love I'm spinnin' wheels in the dirt, I damn can't stick around no more That old familiar hurt, can't seem to pick myself up off the floor And even though I want you And lightning don't strike twice Well, when the thunder comes Take my advice Better know what you got, cause what you got is what's killin' you Baby Ahh, ah, ah ahh, ah, ah Ahh, ah, ah ahh, ah, ah You're just some worn-out King tellin' me how to walk across my floor You said the same damn thing yesterday into the day before You're just a Cupid Killer I'm a little bored, destroyed by love You're just a Cupid Killer I need more than your worn out love You're just some worn-out King tellin' me how to walk across my floor You said the same damn thing yesterday into the day before And I can see the stars shine from anywhere We'll dance our last dance, I don't care You're just a Cupid Killer I need more than your worn out love Cupid Killer Cupid Killer

Do you know, babe, just how long been lonely for your touch? Anticipating, dying, waiting--on fire, in deep, blood rush Dreams of you, forbidden fruit, don't look, don't speak, can't touch Hard temptation, my frustration, I want you way too much Such a beautiful curse I'm my own saboteur Such a shame, shame, shame this game keeps me Inside sleeping woods it's understood Don't go where you'll get lost Consumed and bound, don't make a sound, Too late the line's been crossed So dark and deep, these promises I keep Keep guilty lovers tame This chill in the air, threatens and dares To blow out our lovers' flame Oh, such a beautiful curse I'm my own saboteur Don't wanna know, or weep, or speak of you so much it hurts But you're the only one I got the right to be wrong Such a shame, shame, shame this game keeps me And the sky keeps crying out As every star bends to hear Sick to death of my excuses Sick to death of all my fears But the bogeyman keeps talkin' Whispers death into my ear And these wounds they run so deeply And this pain is far too real Such a beautiful curse I'm my own saboteur Don't wanna know, or weep, or speak of you so much it hurts But you're the only one I got the right to be wrong Such a shame, shame, shame this game keeps me Shame shame shame this game keeps me Shame shame shame this game keeps me Frozen

Hello. How are you? You're lookin' so fine. No, it's true. Remember the time we first met? You think that was good? You ain't seen nothin' yet. Like a bee to some honey; a moth to a flame. You got an addiction and you got me to blame. You never saw it coming 'cause I make no claims 'til now You can call it the unexpected or you can call it... wow! You can call it call it... wow! You can call it call it call it... wow! You can call it the unexpected or you can call it call it call it call it... Sorry, I don't know what came over me. The cycle of the moon affects the motion of the see what you did. It's starting all over again. We both want it now more than we did back then. Like a bee to some honey; a moth to a flame. You got an addiction and you got me to blame. You never saw it coming 'cause I make no claims 'til now You can call it the unexpected or you can call it... wow! You can call it call it... wow! You can call it call it call it... wow! You can call it the unexpected or you can call it call it call it call it... Gimme a minute. Let me get myself together. I'm never really out of control. Really, I'm so much better. Maybe it's your eyes, your stare lookin' like... Lookin' like you wanna go somewhere. You wanna go somewhere? Something about the wild in me; it's never tame. I think we're both alike; this is how we became. Like a bee to some honey; a moth to a flame. You got an addiction and you got me to blame. You never saw it coming 'cause I make no claims 'til now You can call it the unexpected or you can call it... wow! You can call it call it... wow! You can call it call it call it... wow! You can call it the unexpected or you can call it call it call it call it...

I bear the marks of the strong but not so proud I've seen and done things, don't want anyone to know about All the needles and miracles can't kill away my shame Nothin's left, when there's no one left to blame Oh, Come down, Angel No one can help me now You sing so sweetly With no one else around Oh, Come Down, Angel All these demons gather 'round You're the only one I hear Help me, I'm comin' down I lose myself, each time more hypnotized Found vindication in this lover's blameless eyes Plunging in, the scarlet ocean, silence pounds Black wave is risin' up Close my eyes I drown Oh, Come down, Angel No one can help me now You sing so sweetly With no one else around Oh, Come Down, Angel Faceless demons gather 'round You're the only one I hear Help me, I'm comin' down Cold concrete digs hard against my skin I'm all out of miracles Please, Angel, take me in I'm lyin' here sick Think this time might be my last Black curtain's closing in I'm commin' down fast Oh, Come down, Angel No one can help me now You sing so sweetly With no one else around Oh, Come Down, Angel Faceless demons gather 'round You're the only one I hear Help me, I'm comin' down Oh, Come down, Angel No one can help me now You sing so sweetly With no one else around Oh, Come Down, Angel All these demons gather 'round You're the only one I hear Help me, I'm comin' down

My love, be brave Fate was written in the stars I could not save Your sweet light from envious dark Now Heaven is happy But me I look for you, Wandering Star Oh, my star Out by the lake, in the most peaceful part of town We took our date, Mississippi River, hallowed ground Two fools in love, we turned up the radio So much in front of us, we had no place to go You went in swimming, the wave crashed, when I turned back Heart sank in my chest, you were gone, never to come back My love, be brave Fate's been written in the stars I could not save Your sweet light from envious dark Now Heaven is happy But me I look for you, Wandering Star Oh, my star Broken and dazed, screamed your name into the sky Maybe my love's just playing tricks on me tonight Cracked a smile, I laughed and felt my soul lift How could the angels take my most precious gift? My head was spinnin', still you were gone, gone from my sight I'll never forget the words you sang to me on our last night My love, be brave Fate was written in the stars I could not save Your sweet light from envious dark Now Heaven is happy But me I still look for you, Wandering Star Oh, my star Ooh, oh, oh
